Representative on Campus:
Union Cabaret brimmin
with live entertainment
By BETH BUFFINGTON
Staff Writer ; ' .
"Come to the Cabaret . . . " would .
be an appropriate theme song for the
Union Cabaret this school year.
The Cabaret, which is located
downstairs in the Student Union in ,
the former billiard room, will offer
regular, live entertainment every ,
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and
Saturday night, said Billy Pizer, the
Union Cabaret's committee
Although the Cabaret first opened
in March and had about half a dozen
programs through the year, it didn't
seem to live up to its full potential,
"Part of the problem was the lack
of publicity and the uncertainty as
to when it was really going to open,"
But according' to Pizer, this year
will be different,
Now the-Cabaret has its own
student committee whose goals
include boosting student and faculty
attendance as well as encouraging
student and faculty involvement in
the Cabaret and its programming.
"The focus of the committee is to
make sure that there is a regular
calendar," he said.
According to Pizer, he and the
committee spent most of August
planning September's bill Df fare.
"In September, we're billing it (the
Cabaret) as the 'biggest free ride since
being a kid . . .' because all the
entertainment is free that month," he
said. "The University Advisory Board
is paying for the entertainment."
"We brainstormed with the (Carol
ina Union) Activity Board for ideas
of performers in general and then it
was just a matter of contacting people

after we decided who would be
suitable for the Cabaret," he said.
On Sept. 7 the Cabaret reopens its
doors at 8:30 p.m. with a mix of jazz,
beach music and ballads by the Ron
McCrae Group and Prince Taylor,
followed the next night with perfor
mances by the Clef Hangers and
James and Rodney, he said.
"One of our concerns for Sep
tember was to pick bands that could
draw their own crowds," he said. I
imagine that the Clef Hangers as well
as The Loreleis will pack it, but that's
the idea at first." The Clefs will
perform Sept. 8 and the Loreleis Sept.
Since the Cabaret only seats 188
people, seating is first-come first
serve, Pizer said. "If there's a pos
sibility of a performance drawing a
bigger crowd than the Cabaret can
handle, then well move (the show)
to somewhere else."
Although the Cabaret may not be
as large as other clubs, those who
attend the programs seem to enjoy
the intimate space and the different
feeling it creates. "Everyone seems to
enjoy playing the Cabaret and in fact,
two of the people who played down
there last year have called and asked
if they could play there again," he
Although September features
undergraduate performances with the
Clef Hangers and The Loreleis, the
remaining performances are mainly
by local talents or bar circuit bands,
"One of our goals right now
which is an ongoing goal is to get
student talent and to act as an outlet
for student talent," Pizer said.
"There's a lot of students who have
the talent but who aren't encouraged
to do something with it." '
Because of its atmosphere and
location, the Cabaret is an alternative
to the Franklin Street bar scene, he
said. The closing of the Cat's Cradle
may enable the Cabaret to get some
of the same type of groups, but he
wants to stay away from,beim
labelled. "We're not trying to be
another Cradle," he said. ;I
Pizer wants to make the Cabaifi
accessible for students. "There ate
people here who are studying at the
library or who are just walkine
around at night who can stop in aip
see what's going on that's why
we're trying to have something
regularly, four nights a week," he saidi
"There really arent that many placed
either that an undergraduate can go
put to at night, especially for live
entertainment;" he saidrfjy?$l
Although Jthe CabareTsprbgramr
ining now-IdnsiststJf jazz, rock
bands, comedy and dance variety
entertainment, its programming may
vary in the future, he said. j
Archie Copeland, director of the
Union, emphasized the availability of
the area. "(The Cabaret) was built
with the idea of four-nights:a-week
regular entertainment with the
remaining three nights for student
organizations who need a performing
room. (The Union) really needed a
programming area, not just a meeting
room," he added.
"It (had) been in the planning
stages for about 3 years and the
change of the drinking age really
instigated it," Copeland said.
Other groups that are performing
in September are Brother Josef and
Friends on Sept. 9; Impact on Sept.
10; Pinky Wyoming, and Duke
Lacrosse with the Gin Dickeys on
Sept. 14; Dear John on Sept 15; Eve
Cornelius Chip Crawford Group on
Sept. 16 and Roily Gray and Sunfire
on Sept. 17.

. The new lot is key to helping solve
parking problems that have increased
with a loss of lots to construction
projects, Gardner said. North Carol
ina Memorial Hospital employees
will benefit as well as UNC students,
faculty and staff.
Also, a committee currently stud
ying the possibility of building a
parking deck at Craige Residence
Hall is "supposed to report to the
chancellor sometime soon," Ruther
It the deck is approved, the new
lot at Estes Drive will be a key factor -in
controlling parking problems
created by the temporary loss of the
Craige lot, Gardner said. v
The parking lot will be financed
with money from the parking fee
collection which has been reserved for
projects like this one, Swecker said, i
The new lot would be comparable
to the P lot located at Estes Drive
and Airport Road. It would have 502
spaces, , including 1 1 handicapped
spots and 10 motorcycle spaces,
Gardner said, and would probably
require bus passes to campus.
The property for the lot is already
owned by UNC, he said. It is located
just east of the intersection at Estes
Drive and Seawell Road.
